8:44 pm
city adopted a goal a policy to eliminate traffic deaths in san francisco and while we're not here to mourn their loss we certainly want to honor them and again offer our dlops we're here to reinforce the notation this is is not accidents i want to ass ask us to eliminate accidents when we talk about traffic collisions in the street the word accidents suggests inability accidents happy but we've we've done by adopting vision zero we don't accept that the inability of people getting killed and sierra injured in our streets not something we're any longer than accepting and it is something that modern
8:45 pm
we're telegraph hill working together under the leadership of our mayor within the city but the greater san francisco community to make sure we eliminate traffic fatalities in san francisco by 20024 there's a number of physical improvements that are going into the streets we've already gotten 12 of the 24 so-called vision zero projects in the ground and here today to talk about improvements on gere and fulton ironically the two streets people lost their lives in the last two hours makes this real and impervious we're making the improvements and also importing the laws we're joined by the san francisco police department to step up to make sure that when
8:46 pm
people are traveling around san francisco no matter how are you how are you how their traveling adhere to the laws and it is about education outreach we look to the media to help us get out achievement of vision zero everything has a responsibility anytime you step off a sidewalk go go that in but you automobile or walk that your traveling and aware of our surrounding so we will continue to doing the right thing to make the city save we need everything to do their part so we don't have to start press conferences in the future with press conferences like this we're doing a lot with the leadership from city hall the board of supervisors adopted vision zero policy and mayor ed lee has directed all the departments and exclusive branch
8:47 pm
of government to accelerate do everything we can to make our streets safer please welcome our mayor, mayor ed lee. >> thank you, ed (clapping.) let me add that as we take a moment ponder the circumstances of which those fatalities happen we are working very hard to make sure that there is less of this and today, we're in district one with commissioner eric mar who also joined strongly the effort to put their concrete work into vision zero to make that happen today, we wanted to demonstrate as part find an education and awareness campaign those strooirpz we called them san bernardino are a striping on the swauktsz that have in the past obey retired around schools and
8:48 pm
mid street kroger's are now going to be more dominant in our intersections beginning on geary street those are important one there are and do in fact slow down traffic and make people more aware but also what ed reiskin and others have been saying in our street safety advocates we've got to make people more aware if we can make sure that ice are the first and not other distractions that the eyes see the crosswalks and people in the crosswalk using that it will penetrate people in vehicles to slow down and respect the people that are using the sidewalks and streets and the warns turns into a higher level of safety on the streets this is exactly what
8:49 pm
we're trying to side here you'll see the departments working i'm going to take physical action and laying down the stripes myself but more of this is going to happen because we as a city agreed we're going to put serious resources into these our vision zero so that it is not just a a pronouncement we make those things happen on as many street corners as possible this is a relatively easier treatment to do but a higher awareness comes boo about it as we work on the compacted streets and intersections that require xylophones and a lot of other agencies to be involved in safety of those intersections and streets reich like we have probably a half block away on a very, very business intersects at the same time in in addition
8:50 pm
to the so-called descend are a striping we'll be taking a look at with our police department and our mta and public defender's office and others on the streets what streets in our city that we have direct jurisdiction where we can slow down traffic on an official basis even a 5 mile reduction in the speed allows nor awareness and more care to occur on those streets and so we have named some of the streets that will slow down the speed on and we've already done so on sunset and some of the streets we to name more streets that has your signage and office those as well as our officers we want to insure the public we're working to redesign other streets completed streets and make sure
8:51 pm
that we present safety to be the preit is not necessary policy to be rkd in those streets but also you'll see me and the supervisors and ed reiskin as well as others making periodic announcements to keep visibility on this serious topic of that he had public safety bicycle safety and driving safety to make sure that awareness is at its highest level and to make sure that violators it will be consequences and our officers are out here today sometimes, we might feel we cannot solve every if at any point we can keep a vigilant and dedicated effort to continue to educate and making those changes so this leads to a higher level of safety not about
8:52 pm
being help also but more action in lives lost that were going to take an opportunity to come even more concerted effort we need to make to prevent those things from happening we have busy streets it in san francisco that's a indication of our economy but make sure that is complimented with a higher level of awareness for safety for everybody thank you for being here commissioner eric mar. >> (clapping.) thank you complair and director reiskin on the yes, ma'am of the responding district i'm going to put my notes aside i'm anger and inside mr. alfred 87-year-old mr. alfred yee on gary and 26th

8:54 pm
this so my comments are from my heart three or four supervisors from the time after sophies death in the new year's time over a years ago we're looking at new york city and other cities with the bicycle coalition and walk sf and our community coalition we've been advocating for this i'm glad it tom maguire with our sustainable streets is here my hope was we painted stripes that are important csa as we think about high injury corridors like geary and others we're looking at other practices and putting our money where and mouth is the culture of feeding in san francisco our community coalition office says the culture meeting meeting in san francisco not only pedestrians but bicyclists and other drivers
8:55 pm
at risk there are too many tragedies not only mr. alfred lee and others in the richmond district throughout the city the two children i mentioned the told her a two combrrldz hit in the outdoor richmond on fulsome we move to lower the speed limit i hope that our city like portland and seattle have safe routes to schools i'm hoping san francisco iowa's what put our money where our mouth is and making the streets safe is a responsibility as the mayor said for all of us but the walk sf and the pedestrian advocates have been working on this for many decades we have to listen the coalitions the traffic
8:56 pm
lights like the new ones planned for 22nd and geary and 26th and geary like the ones near the senior centers i hope to implement that around other vulnerable areas i as geary rapid transit moves forwarded how to implement the vision zero longer than geary boulevard i as a superintendant for the richmond i urge the mayor and director reiskin to move as quickly as possible to prevent the death in the corridors reducing the slightly and thirty mile-per-hour in many ways is not that much of a reduction but as asz our distributing that slowing down saves lives we'll
8:57 pm
